A bit of a trek to walk, but you can get there by boat taxi, or by scooter or car. There is a small taverna with a traditional Greek menu and a nice beach with plenty of shade. The sea is ideal for swimming and...More

An easy 30 minutes walk along the coast road or the well marked path at the back of Yialos (turn right in front of the cemetery) or by regular water taxi, will take you to this quiet spot. The beach has been improved since last...More

While staying at Emporio in Nimborio Bay this little beach was a five minute walk away . A water taxi takes you to the main port of Gialos if you want and the food at the taverna is very good .

Nimborio is very charming and absolutely worth a visit. The beach is nothing special for Greek standards. In the winter of 2017-2018, flooding in the mountains caused stones, gravel and mud to cover the beach. This means that it does not appear crystal blue as...More

Just a 30-40 minutes walk or 10 minutes ride/drive/water taxi from Yialos is Nimborio, a charming bay/beach. There you will find the Metapontis taverna and sunbeded beach, as well as a few houses.

Honestly, I was underwhelmed by the beach. We stopped in Symi for the day. After hiking up to the highest point we walked to the beach for a relaxing dip. The small beach was covered with lounge chairs. The spot at the end of the...More

You can walk here from Symi harbour in about 35 minutes. It's on a road so it's not a hike or anything too tricky! However it's not for the faint hearted - take water with you. You pass heaps of little bays where you can...More

This is a popular little beach, I suspect partly because of the warm welcome given by the people at the taverna. For the energetic and those who get up before it is too hot, it is possible to walk to this beach but for the...More

From the clock tower, it took us 45 minutes to walk round to the taverna at Nimborio beach. We liked it here and came back a few times, finding it a relaxing place to spend the day. . One day we took the taxi boat...More
